Redhead Sunrising

Having been on annual leave for the past week and not spent any of it shooting had finally got the better of me. So I decided to head to redhead beach for a sunrise. The annual month long surfest festival had begun and surfing was due to be held at redhead, so it was as good a place as any for a sunrise.

I’ve said before that redhead is a location that I haven’t been able to come away with a picture that I really love. Well I didn’t quite get there this morning but I got a lot closer than ever before, so I was pretty happy with how the morning turned out. Shooting at redhead can be a bit awkward due to the very bright security flood light that throws a terrible colour cast across the beach and this morning was no different.

Whilst on leave this past week, along with doing all the jobs and chores that you continue to put off i also purchased some new gear. On the advice of some very talented photographers i purchased a new Sirui waterproof (and very light) tripod and some NiSi Filters.

This morning was my first opportunity to try both out. The filters allow a circular polariser – which helps to darken skies, manage reflections, or suppress glare from the surface of lakes or the sea along with up to 3 other filters, such as a 10 stopper – long exposure filters that help to reduce the light entering your lens by approximately 10 stops, allowing for much longer shutter speeds.

The NiSi filter system on first use is quite easy to use and handle and I’m looking forward to giving them a much better workout.
